Good Luck, Good Wife: 13 TV Shows That Survived Killing off Major Characters

South Park Misses First Deadline in 16 Years Due to Power Outage, Forced to Air Rerun

Sixteen years of doing everything at the last minute finally caught up with the South Park guys this week.

To stay current, Trey Parker and Matt Stone famously wait until six days before each new show to begin working on it. But that tight deadline turned into an impossible one this week, as work ground to a halt during a three-hour power outage Tuesday at South Park Studios in Los Angeles.

For the first time since it premiered in 1997, the show missed its deadline and was forced to air a rerun Wednesday night.

Isaac Hayes showed up on Wednesday’s 10th season premiere of South Park after all, with the voicetrack for his character Chef assembled from the soul singer’s past episodes.

Chef Back in South Park, Minus Hayes

When Comedy Central’s South Park serves up its tenth-season premiere Wednesday night, expect a heaping plate of trouble.

Because episodes are often produced in just six days, creators Matt Stone and Trey Parker had time to create a show skewering the character of Chef, who was voiced for the past decade by Isaac Hayes. Hayes, a Scientologist, quit last week, citing what he called the show’s “intolerance and bigotry” toward religion.

Isaac Hayes Quits South Park

Christians, Jews, Muslims, Mormons and Scientologists have been raked over the comic coals of Comedy Central’s South Park, and Isaac Hayes, who voices the character Chef, says he won’t stand for it anymore.

“There is a place in this world for satire, but there is a time when satire ends and intolerance and bigotry towards religious beliefs of others begins,” the 63-year-old soul singer and outspoken Scientologist said in a statement.
